It’s official! Conan to leave NBC

From The TV Column from the Washington Post:

Late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien and NBC have finally signed their deal for Conan to exit as host of “The Tonight Show,’ NBC confirmed today.

“NBC and Conan O’Brien have reached a resolution of the issues surrounding O’Brien’s contract to host ‘The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien,'” NBC and Conan said in a statement Thursday around noon EST.

Minutes later, NBC issued another statement on its own announcing that Jay Leno will return to host “The Tonight Show” on March 1.

“We’re pleased that Jay is returning to host the franchise that he helmed brilliantly and successfully for so many years,” NBC Universal Television Entertainment Chairman Jeff Gaspin said in that statement.

Big Coco fan that I am, I’m not happy about this. I’m not going to get into my feelings about the whole situation, but I will say late night will not be the same and Conan will be sorely missed. Nobody knows what his future will be, but whatever that may be, I wish him luck and can’t wait for him to return to television.
